And they’re real journalists, so it must be true.
I was contacted yesterday by Rusell Goldman for my insight into the world of celebrity hangers-on and social climbers. Initially thinking was calling me out on my obviously parasitic function as a low-rate gift bag junkie, I was surprised when I realized he was hoping to get my “expert” opinion on some of the more high-profile Hollywood/socialite groupies about whom I snipe on a daily basis. Here’s a snippet of me chatting about why we love to hate the Brandon Davises of the world on ABC News.com:
“We pride ourselves that there is no caste system in America,” Timmons said, “that you can come to this country and become self-made … I want to feel that someone making more money than me deserves it — it justifies the hierarchy of the capitalist system.”
That’s right folks. We use words like “hierarchy” here at ASL. You can thank my Word-A-Day calendar for that doozy.
